A new drug policy organization was launched today: Drug Policy Institute at University of Florida. It’s headed up by Kevin Sabet, and includes such luminaries as Robert DuPont, Keith Humphreys, and Tom McLellan. The rest of the list includes a bunch of former and current hard-core drug warriors. So, you can be sure their work will be balanced and evidence-based.
They’ll be teaching an online course, hosting an annual conference, and developing one-page drug policy papers for legislators.
